Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols just keeps on slugging his way up the all-time home run list. On Wednesday night, he added two more home runs to his total, Nos. 611 and 612, tying him with Jim Thome for seventh in the history of the game.

His first blast secured him a 20-home run campaign in 2017, the 16th time in his 17-year career he has reached that mark.
He’ll need just one more home run over the season’s final month to pass Thome and hold down seventh all by himself.
